A dysfunctional family gathers to celebrate their mother’s 70th birthday
One of the opening scenes of this comedy-drama features a shot of the frontage to St. Pancras station. The final scenes meanwhile take place on the rooftop of a flat overlooking the station and a couple of HST’s are visible in the platforms. This is the same rooftop that appeared in the second series of 99-1, an undercover police drama series starring Leslie Grantham that was aired on ITV in early 1995.
